Move?[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the move request was: Going to move this to Draconic creature singular, without the disambig. If we need it in future, we'll use it then. ♠PMC(talk) 08:46, 7 December 2011 (UTC)

What is the reason for the disambiguation? 71.194.119.1 (talk) 18:25, 25 November 2011 (UTC)
I could see moving it to the singular Draconic creature, but yeah no good reason for disambiguation. Torchiest talkedits 21:59, 25 November 2011 (UTC)

That doesn't actually explain what you mean. 129.33.19.254 (talk) 15:23, 28 November 2011 (UTC)
It explains perfectly. "draconic" is an adjective, meaning dragon or dragon like. The article on dragon also contains information on dragon like creatures. I don't see why this much exposition is necessary from deriving meaning from a simple line of diction. 70.24.248.23 (talk) 14:10, 29 November 2011 (UTC)
Because this article is about a particular group of creatures from a particular game, not just anything ever described as "dragon like". But since there is no other such group with an article on Wikipedia, there's no need for disambiguation. Torchiest talkedits 21:08, 29 November 2011 (UTC)
  • Oppose. The phrase draconic creatures does appear to be used outside of D&D [1], and quite popularly so [2] [3], but it's the only usage on Wikipedia as yet. Disambiguation is unnecessary and likely to remain so. Andrewa (talk) 01:50, 5 December 2011 (UTC)
